Today is the 75th anniversary of D-Day

On June 6, 1944, US, British and Canadian Allied forces invaded the coast of Normandy in northern France.  The landings were the first stage of Operation Overlord. The Goal: To bring an end to World War II.  At the end of D-Day, the Allies had established a foothold in France and within 11 months Nazi Germany was defeated. More than 13,000 aircraft + 5,000 ships supported the operation.

*D-Day was the largest amphibious (land and water) invasion in history.
